2 Jan 2014 - Snapchat Data Stolen; App Will Be Updated
A database of Snapchat 4.6 million usernames and some associated telephone numbers with the last two digits blurred has been posted online. The site where the stolen data were posted has been taken down.
The people behind the attack say they exploited recent changes made to Snapchat to access the information. A message on Twitter from Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel says that the company is "working with law enforcement [and] will update when we can."
